Quaint furnished bedroom and private bathroom in large 1930s duplex

We're advertising a spacious furnished bedroom (with a walk-in closet and ceiling fan) and private bathroom in our four bedroom/two bathroom duplex. Our home was built in the 1930s, so it's full of charm, arches, and nooks. It's large enough where there's enough space to think and walk around without feeling crowded. Added bonus: your room is the only one with a private reading/living room space (see attached photos) and attached bathroom. Great for those who love to contemplate with a natural tv (i.e. a window) and candle!

You'd be sharing the duplex with me and another female roommate, who are academics at UCLA. We're tidy and quiet people and prefer a roommate who is similar. We also have a spacious flower and herb garden, so you can relax there or even garden if you'd like.

Females preferred. No drugs/smoking here please. No pets.

Options: The space is available for a two to twelve month timeframe (ideal for students) possibly longer, but you need to be able to live here for at least 2 months. The rent is $1,150 plus 1/3 utilities (internet, water/trash, gas/electricity, and soaps/paper towels/toilet paper) with a private bathroom. Ample street parking always available.

The room is furnished (see photos). The bed is a full size, and has a mattress protector. You can get a different desk if you'd like, and of course bring some nice things you'd like to add to the decor. You're welcome to make it feel like home!

If you're interested, please email introducing yourself. The apartment is available from May 1, 2020, (April is possible) and we're interviewing. If that time frame works for you, get in touch and we'll arrange a time to meet.

All the best,

About Me
Hi! I'm a Lecturer in Linguistic Anthropology at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). I just finished my doctorate, and I'm teaching in the Anthropology department at UCLA. My research is in West Bengal in northern India and I work mainly with women converts to a conservative Hindu religion. I've traveled around the world mostly with my husband, a current postdoc at the LSE. Because we have to be apart for this year, I'm renting out a bedroom that we have normally used as our office. It's been redone to be suited for a postdoc or academic who needs a furnished unit during their stint in Los Angeles. We're a 25 minute drive to UCLA and a 15 minute drive to USC. There are bus lines that take you directly to UCLA.
